Translation: Words into History

One of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite (Irish) plays:

“[I]t is not the literal past, the ‘facts’ of history, that shape us, but images of the past embodied in language.”
-Brian Friel, Translations

Speak and write carefully: your words are powerful, and they could become history!
